Assistance to put the categories list on all pages

Hi,


Thank you for a lovely clean and simple forum.


I am hoping that someone can help me add the categories list onto all the forum pages (specifically topic) as it appears in topics.

Would someone be so kind as to direct me please.


Thank you

Hi mate smile


I think it is necessary to change the "template view" files in the design you are using.


It's best to ask the Codologic team @admin @AdeshRohanD'silva (Adesh Your name cant be mentioned) about this because I'm just not good enough with PHP.

Kind regards and good luck,

Hi Andy,


Thanking you for making me feel welcome smile


Yeh, I can change the template, but it is undefined. I am very, very (a couple of days old) in Codoforum and I am just trying to find my way around.


I have found the controllers and the js files (php I am ok, javascript not so but I can follow it).


I am doing something wrong - clearly - but I feel like I am missing something. I also am not sure if I am supposed to be finding a "cleaner" way to create a block or something rather than directly edit files.


I will keep trying and hope that admin / Adesh are kind enough to assist.


Thanks again,


UPDATE:
controller/forum.php - found it !


Again, thank you Andy for the moral support smile


I don't know if this helps, but in case anyone else is looking to do something like this - all corrections welcome - here is what I did.

I am sure it is not ideal to edit files, but it was a good way ( for me at least ) to learn the structure.


This is my result.

Hi Andy, Thanking you for making me feel welcome :) Yeh, I can change the template, but it is undefined.
